Apply for a Blue Badge

If you’re disabled, have severe mobility problems and have difficulty using public transport, you may qualify for a Blue Badge which lasts for three years.

It's a way you can park close to your destination and travel independently.

It is a criminal offence to use someone else’s Blue Badge or drive a vehicle displaying a badge unless the badge holder is a passenger in the vehicle or if the pass has expired. If you do so you are liable for a fine of up to £1,000.
